Newlywed Meghan McCain Shares Romantic Photos from Her Western Country Wedding
Less than a week after tying the knot with conservative pundit Ben Domenech on Nov. 21, the View co-host shared some behind-the-scenes photos from her gorgeous wedding day, which took place just before sunset at the family lodge in Sedona, Arizona.
McCain, 33, posted numerous images from the celebration to Instagram on Monday, including one of the bride and groom embracing and lovingly gazing into each other’s eyes.
The daughter of Sen. John McCain — who was diagnosed this summer with glioblastoma, an aggressive stage 4 brain cancer — additionally shared two snapshots of the couple after they said their vows: one of the pair walking down the cowhide-adorned aisle hand-in-hand after being declared as husband and wife, and another of the duo dancing nearby their multi-tier wedding cake.
At the reception, guests were seated under a large white tent, which was decorated with green vegetation and lit with twinkle lights and a rustic chandelier.
“Our love is a country song @btdomenech . 11.21.2017 🌵❤️🇺🇸” she captioned the series of images.
On Monday, McCain resumed her co-hosting duties on ABC’s The View and opened up about her special day.
“We got married at our ranch in Sedona and it was real country,” she said on the show. “I wanted a western country wedding — my aisle was cowhide. I want to give a big special shout-out to Shooter Jennings for singing. … And I pulled Clay Aiken out of retirement to sing and got my dad to cry.”
“I got very drunk on whiskey,” she added with a laugh. “And had a great time dancing the entire time.”
Overall, McCain said the entire celebration was “really fun” — even though she’s usually not a big fan of ornate weddings.
“I think we sort of overdo it with weddings in general … but I understand why people do this,” she said. “It’s a beautiful celebration of love.”
